I lit you a birthday candle
and yelled at God
For the moments he has left me
Without you

Beams of clarity
Seem to remind me
you are what is missing

In isolation
In a Stranger's house
In waves of sleep
Where are you?

I want you to blow out your candles
I want you to rip open the gifts
I need you to be here
And I need you to be clear
In front
Of my face.

the things I said make my eyes sore
The things I didn't do much worse

I'm angry at time for pushing us further apart
If only we could go back to the start.
